Two Apples

Continuing the series on cropped fruit pairs, I decided to include a work in progress shot along the way. These two apples are lit from the left side in my favorite shadow box staging. It provides a nice sharp contrast and an interesting sinewy "S" shaped shadow. I was careful with the composition to avoid tangents and keep the focal points in strong locations to move the eye around in the painting.

Here is the work in progress:

And here is the final painting:

Oooh that is pretty cool, I like how you did the progress pics. I should do that on my blog. I will have to do that with my next painting. :)

Thanks for the idea.
